Tangent Christmas Meeting

Just back from holiday and straight into the festive season. It was wonderful to see 33 ladies enjoying a relaxing and chatty evening over excellent food at The Old Vicarage – somehow Mary ended up telling us stories of her mother’s bloomers.

I agree with Pearl when she said that she thinks it was probably the best meal that we have had there.

Jane Boulton lit the Candle of friendship as she did, she expressed thoughts for those who were unable to be at the meeting with us, especially Audrey, Helen and Pat.

Mary Ward said Grace.

Jenny did an amazing job with the raffle; four prizes for a Christmas bonanza.

Thanks go to all the ladies and especially to Pearl for such excellent organisation of the evening.

On Thursday I went to the Debenhams gala event organised by Tangles. I had a very good evening looking around, eating canapes and drinking bubbly wine. I saw Viv and Brenda there, loaded down with shopping. I trust they found some bargains.

Our first meeting in the New Year will be at The Royal Oak, Kings Bromley on 8th January 2019, Pearl has emailed the details and menus out to everybody. I am looking forward to seeing you there.

I would like to wish everyone a very merry Christmas and happy New Year.
